First blood for the Pro Sport.

Recommended Posts

Well I got out for a few hours today lads with the newly zeroed Pro Sport.

                    I put a hide up by a tree that I know gets pigeons dropping in and waited.

                     Just 5 minutes in and a Magpie was sat in the highest branches, the strong wind had him bouncing and riding, leaving him with a reversed Mohican feather cut to the top of his head and me with a " just missed". :icon_redface:

                    So we waited and waited and waited when I noticed the tiniest flicker, - tells me my concealment is good :good:

                    A hawk just 28 yds off.

                                Well the wait continued until at last a Wild and wily wood pigeon landed.

                                I had the Pro Sport on point instantly, safety off, then the "building of the shot".

                                Here`s her zero again.

                      Nice clean heart/ lung shot at 34 yds lased - instant despatch.

 

                       Lovely hunting rifle, The Pro Sport .177

I do too Matt :good:.

                Once you`ve learned their shot cycle they are pcp accurate.

                 The first hunting shot of this rifle was a Magpie, Matt.

                  It was a good 38 yds away and at around 70 ft up, I`d already test shot the tree branches, as I always do and the cross hair was pinpoint.

                  Anyway just as I took the built up shot a gusty breeze drew the branches down the instant I squeezed off and in the follow through I saw that Magpie get such a parting dead centre of it`s bonce ,i`ve decided to call my Pro Sport -  " Maggie", - first time I have ever owned a rifle with a name. 

                             Thoroughly enjoyed today mate.

The T Rex won`t be getting any substitute spots Jimmy, they are far to good for that.

                 Yes the Pro Sport is fast to the shoulder mate and quick on point.

                 Got my HW 100 KT back this morning so she might get a run out next.
